We've stayed here several times in our tent, and enjoy it. The sites are well spaced for privacy. The outhouses are close. The best thing is they have potable water, unlike most provincial parks where you have to boil it first.

This beautiful campground is so peaceful and quiet on Mondays. You feel like you're in a bird sanctuary when you sit in your lawn chair and listen. The one problem is there are not enough campsites.

It’s a nice spot, unfortunately the lake is somewhat un-swimmable. However in the summer it’s really fun to fish here and go on hikes. Lots of wild life!

This park is nice. It's quiet even though it's close to the highway. It's a bit of a walk to get to the lake but it's a relaxing walk and the trails are well marked. The park is close to the golf course and only...More

We decided to get some exercise and a friend recommended Charlie Lake. Lots of trails from beginner to more difficult that were lovely to walk in summer, but I'm presuming would be even better snowshoeing or cross country skiing in winter. Easy to navigate with...More

Hi Nicole. Yes you can make reservation there. I think they only reserve a few sites though.
